Open-top pouch with Coverlet Strap by Eric Ewing

This open-top pouch is made from several different antique fabrics.  The coverlet strap is backed with cowhide and trimmed with bark-tanned deer hide.  Hemp rope is used to attach the strap to the pouch and is left long for attachment of a powder horn and other items.  The exterior layer of the pouch has woven repairs and is tin-clothed.  There is an antique bone button for closure.
